The local music scene is set to welcome fresh tracks as Manila-based experimental folk band Sasaya releases two new singles under MCA Universal Music this 26th July on streaming platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music. Managed by MCA’s distribution label, Sasaya’s “Musmos” and “AlleluYHWH” capture the essence of filial love as the songs pay tribute to all who stand as parents and guardians.
The latest tracks follow the band’s debut single titled “Bathala” which was released in September 2018 with over 30,000 plays on Spotify. Prior to the new song releases, the band has been taking center stage in various gigs and music festivals such as Baktubak by MCA with Juan Karlos, Racoon Turns 3, Feté’s Discovery Stage, and Upperhouse for 22Tango.
“Musmos” hums the nostalgic tune of childhood, relating to the familiar, lighthearted memories of ‘the good old days.’ “AlleluYHWH,” on the other hand, is a piece that delves into the concept of death and the passing of a loved one. It recounts the unseen journey to heaven through a unique arrangement of beats, instruments, and voices that aims to deliver the sense of being ‘at peace’ when parting ways.
In celebration of the new releases, the band will also be treating its fans to a night of jamming and live music at Warehouse Eight, La Fuerza Compound, Chino Roces Makati on 26th July where they will perform their latest music live including their Spotify hit “Bathala.” Stay tuned and keep those playlists updated with Sasaya’s “Musmos” and “AlleluYHWH” dropping this 26th July, Friday, on all streaming platforms including Spotify and Apple Music!
